Stroke Center Data in findERnow

On an annual basis, EMNet compiles publicly available stroke center data about all US EDs, and will soon make this information available in findERnow. Specifically, EMNet compiles lists of stroke centers certified or verified by the Joint Commission, Det Norske Veritas, Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program, or local government (state or Washington, D.C.).

EMNet also can provide researchers with the complete list of stroke centers, linked with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Provider ID numbers. To request this list, please contact us at emnet@partners.org with a project proposal, including:

  • Your name, title, and contact information
  • Background information on project
  • Your objective/hypothesis
  • Study design, including analytic plan
  • Year(s) of stroke data requested
  • Potential authors (including institution) of the resulting presentation or report
  • Timeline for project

In any resulting presentation or report (including scientific manuscripts), please cite: Boggs KM, Vogel BT, Zachrison KS, Espinola JA, Faridi MK, Cash RE, Sullivan AF, Camargo CA Jr. Development of a unified national stroke center database, 2018. Manuscript under review.
